I will cherish the memories I have had with this amazing woman of God. She resembles everything I hope to become. Her love for The Lord was abundant and an example for all to strive to reach. I am thankful for Mrs. Adams for numerous things, but ultimately bringing me to East memorial Christian Academy when my schools doors shut. She is the reason I have a better education, have lifelong friends and memories, and reconnected with The Lord. I cannot thank her enough for her persistence in our education as a student body and her inspiring smile that lit up the room daily!! Love you Mrs. Adams and though it's tough to remember, but you're the one in the better place right now! Shining your light upon us and still guiding us in the right direction!
